Our Idiot Brother {DVD Giveaway}

** GIVEAWAY CLOSED **
Winners are Sooli & Kaz23z

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend a private screening of Our Idiot Brother and the Roadshow Theatrette.

It was funny. Very funny. Paul Rudd is fabulous and his character, Ned Rochlin, is endearing and completely lovable.

our idiot brother dvd

Ned Rochlin is one guy who chooses to find the good in every situation and the best in everyone he meets, which often puts him at odds with the world around him – especially his family. After all, what can you say about someone who is quite easily tricked into selling pot to a uniformed police officer?

Upon being released from jail, Ned excitedly returns to the organic farm he shares with his girlfriend, Janet, to find that she has thrown him out, and more importantly won't give up custody of his beloved dog (named Willie Nelson). Without a house, a job, or a clue about how to get Willie Nelson back, Ned seeks shelter with his begrudging family.

Have a little look at the movie trailer:



Our Idiot Brother is one of those films you can watch, laugh and not really need to use your brain. Sure the deep, stirring films are great, but it’s good to “switch off” too. I love those sorts of films – don’t you?

Our Idiot Brother is now available to purchase
RRP: $39.95
Blu-ray: $49.95


With thanks to Roadshow Entertainment, I have 2 copies of the DVD to giveaway.

To enter, leave a comment telling me:

  1. I lived on the 2nd level of a large building
    and was woken when I heard the fan in my spare room.
    When I entered the room my brother was there a little under the weather. I asked him how he got in and he said by the balcony
    so I inspected the balcony and found an old blanket and dog food.
    Please explain bro
    "Well on my way here after leaving the pub I had a fight with a dog so I taught him who was boss I took his bed and food"
    Still makes me giggle when I think of this night, I doubt he remembers it

  5. I can't remember how old we were (probably teenagers) but my brother wanted his ear pierced. We got a nappy pin and I pierced his ear. I was nearly sick when the pin 'popped' out the back of his ear lobe! He was okay!

  7. My brother and his friend were at a local hotel which is right on the beach front. They were dared a beer by some back packing females to swim the length of the hotel. Some other patrons overheard this and said they would put up $50 each if they would do it naked. My brother, not being one to turn down a dare, not only swam it naked but did back stroke all the way. He will never live this down and we can't wait for his children to be old enough to be told this story.

  10. When I was younger, I'd constantly fight with my sister. One day, my idiotic sibling decided to throw a metal maths compass at me! It pierced my mocassin slipper and sock and punctured my foot. Dad nearly had the doctor give her a tetanus shot along with me, just to punish her!

  11. This is pretty shocking & no one knows but my sister & I & well now you guys. When we were younger my sister liked this guy that she knew and to get his attention one night after a few drinks she decided to bang herself up a bit against a brick wall to appear she had been bashed & ran to his house saying help help & hey presto in like flynn. I was not there, however it nearly makes me wet my pants with laughter every time I think of her throwing herself against a wall. Its amazing how stupid we can be when we are young & drunk.

  12. Oh man, where to start! If you come from a large family (6 kids), there's bound to be things that happen. One day mom asked one of my brothers to ride his bike to the grocery store to pick up a few things. Sure enough, he hopped on the bike and rode to the store. One problem, he didn't wait for mom to write out the list of things she needed. We still laugh about it today. :) Thanks.

  13. My uncle (who is only 2 years older than me) used to mix nasty drink concoctions (For example: steak sauce, apple juice & milk) and asked my brother and I to drink it. I was the only idiot to actually try them.

  14. My husband has a million stories from his childhood as one of 5 growing up on a farm. His sister Gaye wouldn't move away from the front of the dart board so he threatened to throw the dart anyway, she dared him, he did and hey presto, pierced her ear for her! Then there was the time they found one of their Dad's newly discarded cigarette butts and hid behind the haystack to sneak a puff. One of them thought they heard Dad coming and they threw the butt away, whoosh, up goes the hay stack! There are many more stories, when my Mum heard a few after we started going out she said he should have been drowned at birth!

  15. I put out a cigarette in a tissue and threw it in my bedroom bin. I went out and came home to a house full of smoke and my Mum yelling at me as it was smouldering in my room. I was grounded for weeks.

  18. ahh the days of the young and reckless.........and easily lead.
    Encouraging my younger sister after a shower to run around and around the house doing the "nudie dance" while my mum chased her all the way, will always bring a smile to my face!

  24. My Gran told me the story on how my Aunty Anna had lost her finger, she was 7 and her sister Emma was cutting wood, she was annoying her so she said Anna put your finger on the chopping block and I'll chop it off, Anna did and off her finger went, they both thought the other would pull out before the chop,so now whenever anyone of my family do something brainless we call it our Anna moment.

  27. My idiot brother was climbing Mt Mogadishu, alone except for a guide. When he came across a group of locals bashing a 12 y/o girl., he stepped in to help her. The guide fled. She escaped but he was bashed and left unconscious. He eventually made a full recovery but did a similar thing again a year ater in SEngland. Chivallry is not dead and fortunately he is not either. Let's hope it stays that way.

  28. I hit a car while I was parking and panicked so I left the scene but I left all the evidence as well - my whole bumper bar and number plate. The police called me and said "you are suppose to exchange details when you have an accident". How embarrasing.
